Going Gluten Free – It’s Easier Than You Think

492683765Have you noticed a growing trend toward a gluten free diet lately? It used to be that only those with gluten intolerance or diagnosed Celiac Disease stuck to a gluten free diet.

Why gluten-free?

Numerous recent studies have shown that the wheat we eat today is not the same wheat our parents ate. Scientists have cross-bred and modified wheat to the point where it no longer holds any nutritional value. In addition, it is widely believed that the majority of us have a sensitivity to gluten, and that most cases of Celiac Disease remain undiagnosed.

A gluten-free diet has been touted as a way to take better care of the digestive system and improve neurological function.
